We stayed at Montage. Enjoyed the evening's music and setting sun as we sipped on great wines. Bring a sweater! The air-conditioning keeps the room quite cool.

Not sure this should be the #1 restaurant in Laguna, but it was very nice. Views are excellent as you are 5 floors up from the pool area which is on a cliff about 6-8 floors up from the ocean. Service was good. Nice to see Silver Oak (Alexander Valley) by the glass on the menu. Great piano player. Closes... More

Stayed here twice in the past year. Great place to grab a bite or a couple of cocktails. Pace yourself as the tab escalates quickly. This is the best spot in laguna to start or finish your day.

Expensive breakfast but you get your money's worth in great food, outstanding view and impeccable service. The huevos rancheros were one of the best I had.

very formal and very stuffy, male bartenders have snotty attitudes and act like they are better than the guests. I just did not feel it from the staff, valet was also cocky. Drinks were excellent although expensive. Resort is amazing. Our friends have a 2nd home here so we did not stay in the hotel portion but it was on... More

My friends and I stopped by their patio just for one of their sangrias before lunch and after shopping in Laguna. The view of their pool and the ocean behind it is spectacular. Service is excellent and the waitresses look very attractive in their crisp white embroidered blouses and black slacks. Drinks are a bit spend, but they are accompanied... More

Table are located inside and out on the terrace above the pool and the blue Pacific Ocean. Piano music playing and a nice open feel with the fresh ocean air. Service is excellent and pleasant! What a terrific place to relax while enjoying a sunset or just a pleasant afternoon!
